Nacoochee Presbyterian Church has a long history of Peace and Justice Outreach. The past few years have been a challenge, but the ministry has continued as best we could.
Now we are reaching out to our own church family…
This coming Sunday, May 8, at 9:00 am, the Outreach committee will be meeting in the conference room. If you are interested in learning about Family Promise for homeless folks in our area, Hispanic and Guatemalan ministry, Loaves and Fishes Food Ministry, Georgia Interfaith Power and Light, and the Mass Poor Peoples & Low Wage Workers’ Moral March on Washington and to the Polls, you are welcome to join the meeting.
As part of Earth Day festivities, NPC’s Outreach community hosted a viewing of the film Youth v Gov, an award winning documentary, April 24th at the Cultural center. If you were not able to attend, you can now see the very impactful film on Netflix.
More information about the film is available on https://www.youthvgovfilm.com/.
Also on Earth Day, Hermina Glass-Hill delivered a special sermon in the open sky sanctuary at Oakhurst Presbyterian Church in the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta. The sermon, SOS! Canary in the Coal Mine, amplified the urgent call for communities of faith to stand for climate justice, to commit to climate action, and to boldly confront those who, in this current global climate crises, prey on the vulnerable among us..
In 1968, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others called for a “revolution of values” in America. They sought to build a broad, fusion movement that could unite poor and impact communities across the country. Their name was a direct cry from the underside of history: The Poor People’s Campaign.
Today, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has picked up this unfinished work. Learn more at Poor People’s Campaign .
